Roscomare’s Student Council
The Roscomare Road Student Council Election Process starts next week. Being a member of our Student Council is an important job. We need students who are model students and that care about our school. Third, fourth, and fifth grade students can run for office. Each student can only run for one office. Teachers must approve of student council candidate forms. Students who are not good citizens or missing multiple assignments will not be allowed to run for office. If you are interested, please join me for the informational meeting on Monday, October 12th via Zoom. Here is the schedule for the election process. Students must meet all deadlines to continue with the process.
